No More Sponge Baths! Amramp introduces new Portable Showers


Posted on August 16, 2011

We often take for granted how a daily activity like showering can turn into a major challenge when you are injured or mobility-impaired.

While living primarily on the ground floor of a home may be a necessity, often these homes do not have first-floor showers. What do you do when you are unable to climb upstairs to a second-floor bathroom, or if your home is laid out in such a way that a shower is inaccessible? Is your only option to take a sponge bath or shower out of the sink?

There are other alternatives available: Amramp recently introduced a product that allows you to safely and easily set up a portable, roll-in shower in almost any room of your home within proximity of a sink faucet.

Perhaps you’ve lived in your house for years and even decades, and you don’t want to have to give up living there just because you are no longer able to use the stairs. Or you may have been injured – and it’s only a temporary situation – but you want to be able to take a real shower during your recovery. If so, Amramp’s portable shower offers a quick solution.

An Amramp portable shower:

  • Is affordable
  • Can be used anywhere that warm water is available in the home
  • Does not require a plumber to install – it easily adapts to your existing faucet
  • Is easy to clean and sanitize
  • Can conveniently be stored between uses
  • Reduces your risk of infection and skin damage by rinsing skin with fresh, clean water
  • Removes soap better than a sponge bath
  • Helps your caregiver avoid back injuries.

Affordability, portability, and ease of installation are not the only areas of concern here. Research performed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) estimated that 234,000 people aged 15 and older seek emergency room treatment every year due to bathroom injuries. This injury rate increases with age, with people over 65 more likely to be injured and in more serious ways, such as fractures. Two thirds of these injuries were women, and two thirds happened in a shower or a tub. Amramp’s portable shower allows you to remain in a wheelchair or seat while you use it.

Why spend tens of thousands of dollars constructing a new bathroom on the first floor of your house? Why settle for sponge baths when there is an easy, affordable, portable, non-invasive alternative?

A portable shower from Amramp lets you shower safely and conveniently.
